THE old saying "good things come to those who wait” is certainly ringing true for the team at Wood Ag this month.

Next week, the local agricultural business will celebrate the opening of a brand spanking new shed - one that's been two years in the making.

To mark the occasion, with the help of the Chinchilla Community Commerce and Industry (CCCI), Wood Ag is hosting a trade show and Business After Hours event on Wednesday, March 22.

"This recent renovation is the result of the October 2015 hailstorm,” owner Russell Wood said.

"We were fast outgrowing the old shed that was built around the '40s as a garage, so when we needed to replace our roof it was a good excuse to wipe the slate clean and start afresh.

"It's been quite a long process as we needed Queensland Rail, Transport and Main Roads and WDRC involvement.”

The trade show kicks off at 3pm with 40 suppliers on hand to meet and greet and share agricultural products and ideas with Wood Ag customers.

"It will be a great opportunity for our customers to meet directly with our suppliers and tap into their wealth of knowledge and new products in the pipeline,” Mr Wood said.

"There will be ag chemical suppliers, fertiliser reps, animal health and nutrition to fencing and produce reps, many of whom spend a significant amount on research and development, so it will be great for our customers to talk to these suppliers and learn what is coming for the industry in the next 12-18 months.”

Wood Ag will officially unveil its new shed at the Business After Hours event which begins at 5pm.

CCCI president Rob Hart will also be on hand, talking about the chamber and the current business climate in Chinchilla.

Mr Wood said anyone is welcome to come along to both the trade show and Business After Hours.

"Our suppliers are keen to meet our customers but it would also be great to see some new faces come through the door and see what we do,” he said.

"Everyone is welcome to stay on and join the CCCI members for the official opening, to see what they are all about.”

Mr Wood said he was grateful to other local businesses for their assistance during the renovation.

"Thanks must go to Ainsworth Motors, Bernie Davies, Erb Bros Transport and WDC and a big thanks to our loyal customers for their patience,” he said.
